    Default Price Cut?

    I have been patiently waiting for the talked about price cut. When should this happen? I am so ready to get rid of my Iphone 4s for the Moto X. Just can't make myself pay the overpriced amount of $199. Now $99 is more like it.

    Amazon & Costco both have it for $99.

    My problem is that I need to go through ATT. I gave my upgrade last year to my son (he went from iPhone 4S to Galaxy S3). So I need to use another family members upgrade. Plus I want to be able to return it if I don't like it. I have always had an IPhone. Don't like the 5S. Anyway just biding time until ATT drops the price or I cave in and just do it.

    Same here. Really looking forward to getting this phone but given the fact that we *supposedly* are close to a price cut, I keep thinking that it makes sense to wait just a little bit longer and save some cash. Like you, I also need to rely on a family member's upgrade to get the phone.

    Plus, I think the current $99 phones are for the 16 GB versions and I would prefer the 32 GB anyway. Assuming when AT&T does drop the cost it will include both memory versions although I certainly expect the 32 GB to be more than $99.

    Go to Best Buy and have them price match Amazon.com. You will be able to get it for 99 and they can swap around or do whatever you need. AT&T corporate will not drop the price of the phone for a long time to come. They never drop the prices unless a successor has come out (S3/S4) or the device is End of Life.

    Just curious as to why you would think it would be overpriced at 199 vs say an S4 or G2?

    Don't want to get into a debate about the pricing of the Moto X. There are numerous reviews stating that it is overpriced at $199 and that one should wait for the $99 correction. However, I do feel it is a great phone for my purposes. That is why I will purchase one soon. Just my opinion.

    Then just go by it at Costco or BestBuy or Amazon - you don't need to actually buy it at AT&T just because that's your carrier.

    I was waiting for the same reason - wanted a customized 32 GB phone on AT&T. Finally just bought mine through Amazon. It connects to your AT&T account and set up your wireless plan. Yes, it's only black or white and 16 GB, but I think I'm going to be fine with that, and I really like the black. Came in two days, and I'm loving it. Definitely well worth the $99!

    BestBuy matching online policy quote: "...does not apply to: Contract mobile phones sold by any online retailer, ...".

    As far as getting one from Amazon, my problem is that I'd like to grandfather my 3Gb data plan and Amazon order system doesn't seem to support that. They only offer new shared data plan options. AT&T said they don't guarantee they'll be able to switch it back if I were to go through Amazon anyways. Costco seems like a real deal with the data plan upgrade I need being supported. Too bad I don't have a membership. So the wait continues for me as well.

    I would still give your local Best Buy a shot. Mine has done it for me and if you get the right manager they have the ability to do it.

    AT&T gives you the option of keeping your current plan or changing (to their shared data plans). So you should be able to keep your plan with no changes, even with Amazon. I had that option anyway.

    Yeah, I know that. As I mentioned at&t won't guarantee that they would restore it if I were to change it when going through 3rd party, amazon in this case. And amazon doesn't give me an option to keep my current data plan. It defaults to shared data plan options for me. So that was a no go. I can post a screenshot of the checkout screen. I might be mistaken but a similar checkout process through Costco had offered me the correct options. Thanks.

    Are people generally ok with 16GB? I bought mine in a drunken moment and am thinking that the 32GB would have been so much better in the long run

    I'm perfectly fine with 16GB. All of my music, photos and files are stored in the cloud.

    Could you direct us to these reviews, the ones after the phone released?
    This phone is as much worth, if not more so, $199 than any other $199 Android phone on the market.

    Went to check it out at BB. They wouldn't price match at all. Tried Amazon again and it showed my data plan options correctly, sort of. It didn't force me into a shared data plan anymore but it would still not let me keep my 2Gb data plan, moving me up to 3Gb one. I may have to fix that when I get the phone delivered. So, 16Gb one ordered at $99. Woo hoo!

    Yes, more than enough at 16gb. Photos generally don't take up a lot of space and I back them up to my Google Drive about once a month. I have over 400 songs on my phone as well as Google Play music. Only play a couple of games that take any real space. Still have 6.5 gigs of space available.

    I would have much preferred a 32GB, but that's cuz i'm old fashioned and like to have my music on my actual phone. (but also i live in NYC and taking the subway requires files be on your phone cuz no streaming). I also like to put video on my phone. I have a little external drive thing (the meenova) but would prefer not have to have load files onto it, plug the thing in, keep it handy, look for it, etc.

    Just depends on the wireless manager at BB. Some will match with no problems, others will say no to even local price matches. I recently upgraded 3 different android phones at Sams Club, saved over $200 over BB. Asked BB to price match and they refused even though their policy says they will match.

    "Does Best Buy match the prices of a Warehouse club?
    Yes. We do match the prices of Warehouse clubs as long as the Warehouse club is a local retail competitor, has an identical immediately available product and all other price match criteria are met. We do not match the online prices of warehouse clubs if they vary from store prices."

    I did not argue with them, just went over to Sams and did the upgrade. I am on Verizon and they were giving me a little problem keeping my existing plan (not unlimited, but double data on all phones). The Sams agent helped me talk to Verizon and the process was quick and easy. Personally I found the experience easier than the last time I upgraded through BB.

    As for saving money, don't give the OP an hard time. Some of us live on more limited budgets. My last phone purchase almost 2 years ago I went through Amazon and saved $1,000 on 3 phones ($299 each on contract). I got them on a black Friday deal for $.01 each. The Verizon Corporate store was not happy, at the time they were not allowed to give any big discounts on LTE phones. The one thing to remember about Amazon if you buy from them, you are limited on what changes you can make for six months or they can charge your account $299.

    Thanks for the input. I never heard of that "meenova" thing, so was just checking it out. Looks cool, but it seems like plugging it in and out and keeping track of that tiny thing could be a pain
